53 posts in this topic

Excited that through the generosity of friends of the series, we are having a welcome party Friday May 12th at the Rockingham event hotel. VanDrake Racing and his crew have volunteered to play hosts and have big plans to make this a great kick-off to 2017 racing. Thanks to all involved and more details to follow.

Thanks to Stell Sav for putting up his cashola to the Twin Win bonus. If any driver wins two classes at one of our events in 2017 they get extra money for their troubles. If there isn't a double class winner it carries over to the following event and builds in value. Stell has doubled the prize this year to $100 per event with a max value of $500 at Atco if there hasn't been any winners. Thanks Stell!!

 

Thanks to Gary Rhudy Motorsports for sponsoring the Best Race Package at Rockingham. $100 for best winning package and $50 for best loosing package.

One of the things I've always felt the series was missing was door prizes and raffles.  Problem was manpower and it was just too much to do for our crew of few.

Well one of the best things besides the  $5,000 king of the hill prize #bad_ass_official and @Vandrakeracing are bringing to our events is man or should I say WOMAN POWER.  Having their help run raffles, shirt sales and parties is allowing us to step it up this year.  We cannot thank Benjamin Vanhook enough for his energy and vision for the series.

Look for announcements about prizes to be raffled off and I can tell you now that two big items are a numbered Dodge Demon Press Kit from the NYC reveal and an all expenses paid trip with airfare to the Dominican Republic Punta Cana Resort!!!!  Read it again....

Look for the ladies at the events to get your tickets!!!!!

Courtesy of Joshua Schwartz and High Horse Performance, we are looking to have a Port A Tree Shootout at the Rockingham event welcome party Friday May 12th!!!  Look for more info soon and sounds like the VanDrake Racing models are going to run this for us for additional distraction practice.  This is all to benefit our racers and to enhance their skills of course!!!!!!!!

Hey Dan, how about a sponsor spotlight?  I've asked a couple people about a sponsor and they had no idea who they were or what they were about. So can you tell us a little about VanDrake Racing? I do see they are stepping up big for the series!

Ok folks I know everyone likes to forcast watch and I do the same.  Rule 1, we never mention the R word lol.

I talked to the track and we are lucky that Rockingham is super laid back and beyond accommodating.  They have a jet dryer and best lights in the industry.  We will run til the wee hours to get it in.

If Friday doesn't happen we will treat the first part of Saturday as a rental and start later for #mshs racing.  If we need to start everything late on Saturday we will and it will run to completion.  

Sunday is a last ditch effort but still an option.  We would avoid that if at all possible being mothers day.

So don't worry and just show up.  We have a big party planned, practice tree racing, free beer, lots of raffles, discounted food, friends, models, photo shoots, golf cart racers, just good clean fun.  Don't forget to buy a shirt or 2 or 3 :)
